The Little Britain team parodies the various types of characters associated with life in a major British airport. That includes flight and ground staff from regular - and low budget airlines, as well as officials from customs and immigration, plus some colorful passengers, some up to no good either.Written by
Although seemingly an Arab character, Omar Baba is somewhat based on the Greek Cypriot entrepreneur Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of budget airline EasyJet. His appearance is similar to Stelios (balding, overweight, monobrow) and one of the jokes satirizes the fact his shipping magnate father gave him £30 million to start his business empire. Omar's strategy of cutting corners to provide low cost flights satirizes the business practices that European budget airlines such as Ryanair have been found guilty of and the name of his airline FlyLo is a takeoff of Flybe (it uses the same font in its logo).

Considering that this was made long after Little Britain's success, Come fly with me certainly pulls its weight. An airport setting is a nice refresh from a lot of mainstream comedies. Only 6 episodes where ever made, and that's a real shame because I feel they could have done a lot more with the show. On the upside, it genuinely gives the impression of a real documentary-you could show someone the intro and they would think it is actually about a real airline.
Some people would find it a bit offensive, but personally I didn't find it at all distasteful. The only complaint I have about this show is that I felt the husband and wife pilots "Jackie and Simon" were a bit over used. But it is very minor. It is a good show and is certainly worth your time if you liked Little Britain.
